Well first, put all judgements aside – I am sure you aren’t trying to but it does sound liike you are judging whether or not she has a “right” to be so upset.  Everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time.

Don’t be afriad to ask her what she needs from you.  There’s likely nothing you can do to take her pain away other than make sure he knows you are there for her.  Ask how she is and check up on her regularly – just so she knows you’re there.

If it was me, in situations like this I like to hear THIS SUCKS.  I don’t like to hear everything will be okay. She may be different than I am, but having someone realize how bad it sucks makes me feel better about it.

Maybe you could go keep her company – make her dinner/bring over some take out and watch a movie and drink some wine to get her mind off of things.
